Join Rob in this inspirational episode as he discusses the importance of recognising the struggles, obstacles and challenges on your journey and the importance of owning your own pain. Discover why your journey is unique to you, why great leaders do not seek glory and why what other people think about you, does not matter. KEY TAKEAWAYS Unless you are different from most people, you will have challenges in your life. You will have obstacles and you may feel anger, despondence and you may have felt like you would like to give up. This is all part of our own unique journey. You want to be a leader who facilitates great people. The greatest leaders are those who rise and help people become great and who do not even realise that they are being led. Great leaders do not want glory or limelight, they are just doing their job. Do not deny your reality. We cannot deal with stuff that we hide away, because it is our own struggle, we have to go within to find the answer. Everybody is called from within, it is just that some people do not hear. As it is our own pain, struggle and challenge we have to go through it and come out the other side. This is the road to glory, our glory. What other people think does not matter. We can all have wise councils and mentors and such things should be applauded. However, the answer is always to listen to the wise and filter what they say through yourself. Because ultimately, you are the one that hears it. Ask yourself ‘does this path have a heart?’ If so, it is probably the right way. BEST MOMENTS “They are your challenges, they are not mine, they are yours, they are unique to you.” “Without them, your life wouldn't have the meaning that it did.” “You want to be a leader who facilitates great people.” “Does this path have a heart?” VALUABLE RESOURCES Leader Manager Coach Podcast The Stoic Art of Living: Inner Resilience and Outer Results - Tom Morris ABOUT THE HOST Rob Ryles is a UEFA A licensed coach with a League Managers Association qualification and a science and medicine background.
